January in Review


For a few months in 2016 I shared one-sentence-a-day posts to recap each month. Several of you told me you liked those posts, but I had a hard time keeping up with a sentence for each day. So for this year I’ve decided to try doing a month-in-review post instead.

Here’s what’s been going on around here during the “bleak mid-winter.”
